This game measures how fast you can press a button after you see the cat changing. We will make the cat change from orange to red after a random amount of time. The program will show you the time between the change of the cat and you pressing the button.

Connect the Picoboard to the USB of your computer, start the Chrome browser with Scratch and get the programming blocks for the board by clicking
More Blocks and choosing the Picoboard. Next connect the green board with the Picoboard on INPUT A.
